Building a Movement, Transforming Institutions: A Guide for Public Health Professionals

This new web-based tool synthesizes the array of resources in the field into a comprehensive framework that embeds equity within institutional transformation. The critical first step to advancing health equity is ensuring that institutional infrastructure and operations — from what language is used, how activities are structured, how programs are funded, and how staff are trained — are internally aligned with equity principles, even before institutions continue the ongoing external work to advance health equity through programs and services. In this regard, we include important strategies for operationalizing equity not always found in other resources, such as strategies for building internal infrastructure, sustainable leadership, effective communication and framing, and using data.
